Tetrahedral has 4 areas of electron density while square planar has 3, and they both have 0 lone pairs.
Looking at the formula and calculating bonds and valence electrons should do.
Do the shapes coincide with the VSPER shapes or are they different. For example is a coordination compound with 3 bonds and one set of lone pairs a tetrahedral shape or a trigonal pyramidal shape?
